Thread Name: dobro strings?
Subject: Tech: dobro strings?
Just got a new round neck spider bridge "dobro" (generic; resonator guitar); it sounds fairly sweet as is w/the original factory bronze strings still pretty fresh. The trebles sing out better than the base (wound) side. anybody have any experience w/resonator guitars & advise on strings? I like simple fingerpicking, doubt if I'll try "bottle-neck" any time soon... What abt very bright, vs phosphor, bronze - or monel? stainless? "white" bronze? banjo strings?


Thanx, & cheers, BK
